Last week was our annual week of teaching temari at the John C. Campbell Folk School. We’ve been having a fairly mild autumn this year, so the trees hadn’t quite turned, but here’s a little taste of autumn at the folk school.

I have a lot more pictures from the Campbell, honestly, but I think this is the last one I’ll post for now. This was from a scenic overlook on our drive back.

This gate and its circle of trees sit at the edge of the garden, but look like they might lead into some sort of faerie court.
